The process of getting porcelain veneers is all about giving you the smile you want in the most effective and comfortable way. They can effectively solve issues like tooth discoloration, uneven teeth, gaps and minor bite problems. Here is our cosmetic dentistry guide to this popular treatment:
Step One – Cosmetic Smile Assessment:
Because everyone is a unique case when it comes to dental treatment, it’s important your cosmetic dentistry specialist works with you to plan the different steps that will be necessary to give you the smile you deserve. Our team will fully assess your oral health and keep you informed every step of the way. Once it has been decided that porcelain veneers will give you the best results, it’s on to the next step.
Step Two – Preparing Your Teeth:
A dental veneer fits snugly against the front of your tooth, covering it completely. In order to get the best and most natural fit, your teeth will have to have a very small amount of enamel removed from the outward facing surface.
Step Three – Building the Veneers:
Once your teeth have been prepared, a dental impression will be taken and sent to the lab so that technicians can create our fully customized veneers. They will take into account the size, shape and color of your teeth to ensure the most comfortable, natural looking results.
Step Four – Fitting the Veneers:
After your veneers have been completed, your cosmetic dentist will place them against your teeth to ensure the fit and color is correct. They will then be bonded permanently to your teeth using a matching shade of dental cement that is cured with a special light. After they are fixed on, your dentist will polish the veneers and you will be able to walk out with a brand new smile. To admire the full results, our team will take before and after photos to show you exactly how much your smile has changed.
